Hachi-gui-iwa (”bridge pillar rocks”) are about 40 stone pillars of varying sizes that stand in a straight line for about 850m. Their name comes from the fact that sea erosion has left them looking like bridge pillars. They have been designated as a natural monument of Japan in the Yoshino-Kumano National Park region.
Hashi-Gui, Kushimoto, Higashimuro, Wakayama
These pillars are lit up only from the end of October to the beginning of November every year.
